Oil Change Gilbert AZ

What automotive service have you had done most frequently? Chances are, it’s an oil change. In order to keep our vehicles in tip-top condition, it’s important that they undergo regular maintenance, and an oil change is just one of the many that you’ll need to take care of. Oil is essential for lubricating moving parts as well as preventing them from overheating. Oil isn’t indestructible, though, so over time it will begin to break down and lose some of its viscosity. When this happens, you’re more prone to engine failure and reduced performance. Here at Mercedes-Benz of Gilbert, we don’t want to see that happen to you! Trust our service team to have you in and out in no time. Schedule your next oil change with us at our service department here in Gilbert AZ!

How often do I need an oil change?

Unfortunately, there is no clear-cut sign on when you’ll need an oil change. The general rule is either once every six months or every 5,000 – 7,500 miles, whichever occurs first. Drivers who put on mostly city miles or who drive in more extreme weather conditions should have their oil changed more frequently, while drivers who put on mostly highway miles and drive in more mild climates can get away with waiting a little longer. If you opt for synthetic oil instead of conventional oil for your next oil change, you can go upwards of 10,000 miles between oil changes. Once you get a fresh batch of oil in the engine, you can start to notice the benefits immediately:

  • Smoother running engine
  • Improved fuel efficiency
  • Extended lifespan of the engine
  • Better engine performance
  • Less harmful emissions
